About

History

London College of Fashion has a dynamic and varied history as part of the British fashion industry. Britain was once the leader in manufacturing and trade and now spearheads business, design and artesanal production. We have adapted to, and pioneered, developments in the industry, from science and innovation to business and design. It is our unique past that has allowed for such forward-thinking.

Education

With over 70 undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, and 165 short courses across every subject, we encourage our students to examine the past and challenge the present. To have inventive, assertive ideas that challenge social and political agendas. We give them the skills, opportunities – and above all, the freedom – to put those ideas into practice.

London College of Fashion is one of the foremost centres of fashion education in the world. It’s a reputation we are very proud of. Staying ahead in one of the most exciting and competitive industries takes some doing, but we’re up to the challenge.
